‘Belgravia – Relics of the Future’. A site-specific installation at Emmanuel Post Contemporary Art, Berlin.

Like the brand name Porsche, Belgravia, one of the richest districts of London, stands for a high standard of living, financial potency, and the power of capital. While the financial crisis reached its peak with the bankruptcy of the investment bank Lehman Brothers in autumn 2008, Jan Stradtmann photographed Porsche sports cars in the streets of Belgravia at night. The scenery of the typical upper-class fortified residential complexes in West London – adorned with architectural status symbols of perished civilizations – converts the sports cars parked in front of them into relics of a supposedly better era.

The group exhibition ‘ab_bilden’ (de_pict) addresses the architecture of the Austrian Embassy in Berlin, which was designed by Hans Hollein and completed at the turn of the millennium. In their photo and video works, the artists invited by the magazine EIKON in cooperation with Jan Stradtmann describe the state of the building and trace the postmodern spirit of the 1990s in different ways. Common to all three photographers is their decoding of architecture as an enclosed space. Hollein’s statement that ‘a real architecture of our time is [. . .] about to redefine itself as a medium and to expand the range of its means’ is transferred here to photography: the works presented go beyond their mere status as representative image and break new ground both in terms of medium and technique.
